Perception V Reality

I realized today that my perception of my abilities is in no way reflective of the reality of my abilities. My PR on the 2K row to date is 7:26 and to think that I could drop nearly a minute off that time in a few months was a tad over ambitious. I have now set my sights on something a bit more realistic that being to go a sub 7 by February. I may not qualify to have the Concept 2 people fly me to Boston but it will be a significant improvement and that is now okay.
Missed Saturday so here it is
Row 500 meters
Weighted sit ups 3 x 10 @ 15
Squat 5 @ 45/5 @ 65/3 @ 80/2 @ 95/3 x 5 @ 140 Hit the 140 this week so adding 5 lbs next week
Bench press 5 @ 45/5 @ 75/3 @ 90/2 @ 115/3 x 3 @ 160 trying for 3 x 5 @ 160 next week but I need to find a spotter
Push ups 16/12/10/10/8
Tabata row 94/94/93/97/93/95/96/97 avg. pace 1:45.6 avg sr 33

...and now onto the new week
Row 500 meters
Row sprints 9 x 1 min. with 1:30 ri
284m/1:45.6, 290m/1:43.4, 289m/1:43.8, 287m/1:44.5, 288m/1:44.1, 284m/1:45.6, 289m/1:43.8
287m/1:44.5, 296m/1:41.3
The goal on all these was to go below race pace which I did for all but 2 of them.
Straight leg raise 3 x 10 slow and controlled
Push ups 16/14/10/10/10

I saw someone doing very slow and controlled toes to bar today for sets and I hated him.
(propriety dictates that I inform you that I did not really hate him I was just envious of his mastery)
Barbell row 3 x 5 @115
